Notes:
New Order's sixth studio album, appearing four years after Technique.
And the first one after the demise of their former label Factory, with traces about the partnership gone bitter found on tracks like Ruined In A Day and Liar.

The album is often considered being an economic necessity as New Order have lost large amounts of money because of the deal with Factory Records and their involvement with the Hacienda.

Additionally, the tensions within the band made this “a very, very unpleasant record to make" (according to drummer Stephen Morris), and subsequently the band went into a hiatus for eight years soon after the release.

Produced by Stephen Hague and New Order, with full artwork by Peter Saville (2).

Released in
the UK and Europe on 03 May 1993
the US on 11 May 1993
Japan on 15 May 1993
Australia, NZ and Asia on 24 May 1993.

A limited edition version was released in the US. It has the same tracklisting but an entirely different packaging (a folding wallet made of bright orange vinyl instead of a jewel case) and CD label.

Overall this is a pretty impressive reissue. Nice heavy vinyl, fairly quiet (still need to clean it). The remastering is a pleasant improvement on most tracks--"World" and "Ruined In A Day" are the standouts to my ears. Slightly let down by the version of "Regret" as I was hoping for a more dynamics with the bass beefed up a bit, but it sounds the same as I've heard it before digitally, maybe even more flat sounding. "Avalanche" suffers the same shortcoming. Still, I'd rate this 4 stars because where the remastering is good (on basically 9 out of 11 tracks), it is really good.

I ordered this from US Amazon and got the UK/Europe version with the download card. Vinyl is flat and dead quiet. No pops and clicks.

I've been reading a lot of bad stuff about these repressings, mine is not awesome, but it's really good, sound is a little too low, but it has no background noise nor clicks or pops... my only complain would be that it plays too low, other than that it was pretty cheap...

is this 2003 reissue on london records remastered in any way, or is it the same as the original 1993 release?

My copy is an absolutely lousy pressing with significant levels of noise and 'scratchy' sounds throughout both sides.
